Chloe Chessell and Gemma Halliday – Brief guided parent-led CBT for child anxiety problems. Online event


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is the only psychological intervention for child anxiety problems with a robust evidence base, however, very few children with anxiety problems access CBT. Brief therapist guided parent-led CBT approaches involve therapists working with a parent/carer (rather than a child directly) to support parents to apply CBT techniques to help their child to overcome anxiety difficulties. This workshop will provide an overview of the rationale and evidence base for parent-led CBT, include practical tasks to develop skills in delivering parent-led CBT for preadolescent children with anxiety disorders, and support clinicians to troubleshoot common challenges in delivery. The initial part of the day will focus on understanding the theoretical rationale and evidence-base for therapist guided parent-led CBT approaches, including child anxiety development and maintenance. Participants will then be guided through a session-by-session overview on how to deliver the “Helping Your Child with Fears and Worries” treatment, giving participants practical tasks to develop their clinical skills in delivering treatment components. There will also be time for discussion and reflection.
